Microsoft confirms Xbox All Access, then steps back

The all included service Xbox All Access is, for now, available only in the United States and lets selected users to get a new Xbox console with two different plans, all stretching down to two years of payments.

Microsoft offers two variants of the Xbox All Access subscription, one for an Xbox One X and one for an Xbox One S, priced at $34.99 and $21.99 a month respectively to be paid across 24 monthly payments. The key difference then was that there was a $99 upfront cost, followed by monthly payments of $14.99 over its 24-month contract.

Microsoft has a new monthly financing programme for the Xbox One called Xbox All Access, according to a report by Venturebeat which links to a blog post over at the Xbox website that's not live yet. The Xbox One X package will set you back $840, while buying everything separately would cost $860. There is no upfront cost for either offer; they both include 24 months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold; and there's no interest for the duration of the 24-month contract.

But what makes Xbox All Access all the more noteworthy is in how it makes good on Phil Spencer's DICE keynote and the continued dedication to "Gaming For Everyone" at Xbox.

In fact, Xbox All Access will only be available at your local Microsoft Store, while supplies last.

Microsoft has taken the wraps off a new way to get into the Xbox ecosystem with Xbox All Access.

In the Xbox One X's case, your savings will be much less prominent. Offering a low-priced way to finance an Xbox One X or S tied to Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass is certainly one way to try and grow its ecosystem. The Microsoft Limited Warranty covers the Xbox console for one year (90 days for the controller and accessories). You can also get 20% off purchases of any Game Pass titles to keep forever (games rotate on and off the list sort of like Netflix). After that, the Dell Preferred Account plan can charge up to 29.99% April. With that in mind, you should only sign up for Xbox All Access if you're sure you can pay it off within the allotted 24 months, otherwise, you're likely far better off saving up the money and purchasing everything upfront.
